Akatwijuka is a child from Uganda. He is the only child that his parents have and his mother is pregnant and expecting her next child toward the end of this year. Akatwijuka’s mother is a small-scale farmer and so is her father.
Since birth, Akatwijuka has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort Fortunately, on July 21st, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Akatwijuka’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Akatwijuka’s mother shared, “I hope that when my child successfully receives his surgery, he will again be in a position to grow normally with others and attain a good health once again.”
